the wind it's calm right now. look at the chilly temperatures. 40 in pottstown. 44 degrees right now as we move toward millville. 46 wildwood. low 40s in reading. also, toward the lehigh valley right now but those temperatures by this afternoon with a lot of sunshine yeah, mid to upper 70s. 76 degrees by the afternoon wilmington. 76 in the lehigh valley. low 70s in the poconos. great weather for leaf peeping. then for tonight, temperatures chilly again. 50 in millville. mid 50s philadelphia. 40s once you move north and west. so chilly overnights but pretty comfortable afternoons for the upcoming weekend. high pressure off to the south and west. so that will allow for dry conditions and a lot of sunshine for today. a few more clouds by sunday and then mostly cloudy skies on monday out ahead of a cold front. looks like we'll get the game in on a dry note but after the game some showers moving in from the west, and a pretty good soaking

7:17 am
philadelphia's controversial sweetened beverage tax. but if the tate latest research is any indication, i wouldn't count on it. a new survey from city controller and vocal soda tax critic alan butkovitz says 88% of responding businesses have been negatively impacted by the tax. that's huge. 88%. forget about the fact that none of these businesses were asked to prove their losses. that's not really possible. but note that i said responding businesses. 741 out of around 1600 businesses approached actually filled out the controller's survey. as polling goes, that's a pretty good turn out as butkovitz himself claimed. >> when you do random surveys, universe as long as it is large enough is represents the entire universe and in this case survey of 741 participants provides i was statistically accurate profile. >> reporter: what about those who did not respond? isn't it
7:18 am
likely they were far less likely to have been impacted by the tax? think about it. if a governmental agencies asked you about a new tax and it impacted you deeply, you'd make darn sure you got your opinions out there. so someone would hear you. and if that tax barely impacted you at all, wouldn't you be a little bit more likely to keep walking and blow it off? ♪ >> reporter: we've heard since the tack took effect back in january that stores along philadelphia's border with the pa suburbs would take the biggest beating. it made sense. folks in those neighborhoods had the easiest time crossing the line to get the cheaper soda. but the bucco vets report shows those border sip codes had among the fewest impacted businesses. see there the light colors around the edges. only one of the three sip codes with the most impacted businesses bordered the burbs at all and barely by the way butkovitz notes those three sip codes with the most businesses impacted, well, they're among the poorest in the city, but wait a minute. we were told back in january that poor folks drink more soda
7:19 am
than anyone else. the implication was that poor folks were practically addicted to sweetened beverages and thus this tax would hit them the hardest. what do you know? seems like they figure out they can drink something else as butkovitz admitted when i pressed him on the issue. >> i would concur that there's probably been a significant drop off in consumption in those areas. >> reporter: look, i'd rather pay less than more for soda and just about everything else just like you, and you could argue the kenny administration was less than clear and candid about exactly where the soda tax revenues would go. but if you're going to claim the economic sky is falling with each new levee, you better back it up with numbers that don't fall flat. only in philly. ♪ all right. scott, we all know this i have two devices. how many phones do you havism pad and phone. >> two phones, a computer. >> we are overloaded and overwhelmed by technology in
